The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky
FANDO Y LIS
Mexico | 1968 | Alejandro Jodorowsky
Inspired by a play by Spanish writer Fernando Arrabal, Alejandro (El Topo) Jodorowsky’s first feature caused a riot when it premiered at the Acapulco Film Festival. The movie follows a young man and his paraplegic girlfriend as they journey through a desolate wasteland on their way to the mythical city of Tar, which promises them enlightenment. Along the way they have a series of dreamy, surreal encounters worthy of Buñuel, David Lynch, or John Waters. “An adorable, preposterous mutant film from the heyday of international do-your-own-thing moviemania.” –Village Voice. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. DCP. 96 min.
